More moral and religious eqivalence plane talk

From here:
Pope Francis said fundamentalism is "a disease of all religions", including the Roman Catholic Church, as he returned from a three-nation tour of Africa in which he preached reconciliation and hope."Fundamentalism is always a tragedy. It is not religious, it lacks God, it is idolatrous," the Argentine pontiff told journalists on the plane back from the Central African Republic...Francis said Islam was not the only religion to suffer from violent extremists, such as the ones behind the deadly attacks in Paris which were claimed by the Islamic State. "We Catholics, we have a few, even many fundamentalists. They believe they know absolute truth and corrupt others," he said, adding: "I can say this because this is my Church."
What in the hell is he talking about?

  1. William Luse says:
    As a Catholic fundamentalist, I do have some kind of grip on absolute truth, like that stuff in the Nicene Creed, and that other stuff in the Ten Commandments. Knowing this, I’m going to set about corrupting as many people as I can.
    Here’s that link you tried to publish to Catholic World Report.

    He’s talking about all those Catholic fundamentalists who are blowing up buildings and beheading the infidel in the name of Christ.
    There are a few, even many of them, as long as we don’t think we know the absolute truth about the meaning of “few, even many”.
    Here is a comprehensive list:
